General information

Dr. A.P.S. Selvadurai is currently William Scott Professor and James McGill Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering and Applied Mechanics. He obtained his PhD degree in Theoretical Mechanics from the University of Nottingham (http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/spencerinstitute/index.aspx), under the tutelage of the eminent continuum mechanicist the late Professor A.J.M. Spencer FRS, for research in the area of “Non-linear Elasticity” and in 1986 the DSc in Theoretical Mechanics for research into Mathematical Modelling of Problems in Geomechanics and Elastomechanics”. He joined the Department of Civil Engineering at Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada in 1975 as Assistant Professor, became Professor in 1981 and Head of the Department from 1982 to 1991. In 1993, he was invited by McGill University to become Chair of the Department of Civil Engineering and Applied Mechanics, a position he held till 1997. He has held Visiting Professorships at the University of Nottingham, U.K, Universität Stuttgart, Germany (http://www.iam.uni-stuttgart.de/index.en.html) , The Laboratoire 3S-R (http://3sr.hmg.inpg.fr/3sr/?lang=en), Université Joseph Fourier, Grenoble, France; The Department of Civil Engineering, University of Canterbury (http://www.civil.canterbury.ac.nz/) , Christchurch, New Zealand; The Department of Civil and Structural Engineering, Hong Kong Polytechnic University (http://www.cse.polyu.edu.hk/) , Hong Kong, China; The School of Civil Engineering, University of New South Wales (http://www.civeng.unsw.edu.au/), Sydney, Australia, Departement de Genie Civil, Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (http://lms.epfl.ch/), Switzerland and The Department of Civil Engineering and Geosciences of the Technical University Delft (http://www.citg.tudelft.nl/en/about-faculty/departments/structural-engineering/sections/structural-mechanics/), The Netherlands.
